  • After the delays in waiting for the Covid-19 vaccine last year, Sweden and its Nordic neighbours are now looking into starting joint vaccine production facilities to be prepared for future pandemics.
  • A feasibility study is to be carried out for completion in May.
  • “It’s about trying to find a solution so that in a future pandemic when we need it we have a greater and better capacity to be able to quickly provide our citizens with vaccines,” says Minister of Trade and Industry Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson to news agency TT.
